The NC Department of Commerce sponsored a tent during both the 2014 U.S. Open and the U. S. Women’s Open this year.
The Department of Commerce wanted to support NC potters and provided pottery containers thrown and glazed in NC to hold the flowers in this tent.
These arrangements required a bit of special handling on their journey from the delivery truck to the sponsor tent in the Village.
The original pottery containers made the flowers look all the more striking. Cattleya orchids and calla lilies, with some succulents.
